You may have seen the visual works of Tom Scholefield on the sleeves and videos from the camps of LuckyMe, Warp, Underground Resistance and Hyperdub; but through his sonic output as Konx-Om-Pax, you actually get to hear the inner-workings of an enduring and multi-faceted artist. His debut LP on Planet Mu, Regional Surrealism, drew praise from the worlds of the underground and the experimental simultaneously; as the record was a thorough journey into constantly stimulating soundscapes, which this writer mirrors to the works of Vangelis and Milieu. Rich with textures and full of sensitized structures, Konx-Om-Pax displays how freely his music flows by mirroring his ever-expansive visual arts style. We’re honored to have him grace out with a contribution to our SURROUNDINGS feature, as he takes us on a pretty concise tour of his favorite Glaswegian spots, with a slight detour to Greenpoint to a legendary Brooklyn record shop. Check it out after the jump.
